We empower patients with clinical research

BBK team

The Patients to Find The Cure®


BBK is a pioneer in the field of patient recruitment — innovating, educating and advancing at every opportunity. Founded in 1983, we began by advocating for patients — increasing understanding of healthcare issues  — and continue to do so today.

We believe that engagement is medicine and that it creates opportunities for better health outcomes for all. Our approach to clinical trial enrollment prioritizes meaningful and authentic patient engagement that supports diversity, equity and inclusion.

We support all clinical trials for all patients, everywhere


“We dedicated our company to helping patients better understand their health and healthcare options and, over time, that evolved to focusing on clinical trial recruitment, engagement and enhancing the patient experience.”
